Remote Management Best Practices: How to Improve Employee Productivity


The so-called new normal is a worldwide phenomenon, where things as we used to know them have taken a significant shift. This piece is to help people and organizations learn to cope with the recent challenges brought about by the infamous novel coronavirus outbreak.

One of the most affected sectors is the workforce. With safety protocols being recommended by health experts, it has become necessary to implement remote management practices in many offices. The idea is to let employees stay at home or other appropriate spaces where they can still work so that there’s no need for them to travel and come into physical contact with other people.

Apart from health and safety issues, remote work is also ideal for a whole lot of other reasons. Perhaps you want to save on office building maintenance costs or help promote the concept of work-life balance among your employees. As long as your business operations can continue amidst a remote work setup, you may consider trying it out in your organization.

If it’s the first time that you’re adopting this type of work arrangement, you need to brainstorm with your team and come up with a plan that you can implement across the organization.

As a business leader or manager, your role is to make sure that your employees have a comfortable workspace, first and foremost. With a proper remote workstation, it will be easy for your staff to perform their everyday tasks with high levels of efficiency and productivity. It also gives them a well-defined area where they can focus solely on their work so that they don’t mix office responsibilities with personal life.

Telecommuting can work better for your business and your employees if you set clear expectations and guidelines for everyone. Based on the accompanying infographic below, there’s no shortage of remote work tips to help you see how other companies are doing it to improve employee productivity.

How a clean office can boost productivity [Infographic]

Do you know that

a messy, unsanitary office leads to workers being distracted easily by piles of rubbish and stacks of paper? Indeed, such workspaces could result in employees frequently getting ill and work not being done due to abnormally high absenteeism. By sticking to a cleaning routine and maintaining a neatly organised work space, employees are much more likely to get their best work done and meet targets.

Workplace productivity can be hugely affected by employees taking a high volume of sick leave, some of which is spurious but in most cases it is genuine. Frequently, the offending illness occurs because of unsanitary conditions within the office.

If you work in an office, it’s almost certain that you’ll use a computer as part of your job. At the risk of severe scaremongering, your keyboard might be carrying up to 7,500 bacteria as you’re reading this. Also, that desk on which your computer is perched – viruses such as the flu could linger there for 24 hours or more.

While there is no scientific correlation between a clean office and optimum productivity, the two often go hand in hand for several reasons. Workers in a neat, tidy office will enjoy coming in every day and won’t be distracted by clutter or pick up contagious illnesses. Contrast that with a messy environment where diseases can very easily be acquired, further denting the morale of a workforce that’s already likely to be less than enthusiastic about spending multiple hours a day in an unsanitary office.

Below is an infographic which outlines how clean offices can help with improving workplace productivity, along with recommendations as to how this can be achieved.

10 Ways HR Managers Can Boost Workplace Productivity [Infographic]


Workplace productivity is a business goal that may require two things to become attainable. The first is the investment from the company and secondly, the implementation of friendly human resources (HR) policies such as incentive programs for employees.

Research backs the idea that a top precursor to workplace productivity is to have a reward system in your organisation. While the company will need to allocate financial resources toward employee incentives, the rewards are all encompassing across crucial areas in the business.

One study done among UK companies says explicitly that 85 percent of workers felt highly motivated when there were incentives at stake. And not only that, 73 percent of the employees observed a “good” or “very good” office atmosphere during incentive season. For the company, the benefits of an incentive programme are quite pronounced as the study also found that employee productivity is tied to as much as £80,000 ($106,00) increase in weekly profit on average.

Below is an infographic that shows the different ways HR managers can further boost productivity in the workplace. Feel free to add your suggestions in the comment box below.
